Subject: Great Moment...
I immediately bought tickets to this show when it was announced, so John and I could relive that good time.
Never expected Jerry would die, and the show become a Memorial Show.
Constitution Hall sounds exactly like this recording. Captured it perfectly.
John was E6, hoping to make E7, and was a bit leary of the Dead scene. He got over it, but the show was a bit of a dirge.
Bobby walked off stage often overcome with emotion.
One time he tried to talk to us, the place went silent, but then that one guy who screams loudest in this recording, started yipping, and Bobby got pissed, and they started playing again.
The sorely missed, Rob Wasserman just made us all WEEP with his Amazing Grace, and solid passion throughout the show.
Well, the show wasn't what we expected, but we both left with a sense of renewed Freedom.
I had my Canon EoS with me, and my tripod. We went to Lincoln Memorial. The Moon was rising fat and orange over the Capital Building Dome. We took a multi-exposure series over a period of time. Talked with tourists.
Later, everyone was gone. There were no National Parks Rangers around. Lights were all on. Abe was looking totally awesome.
We decided the best thing to do was to get pictures of each of us sitting in Abe's big lap.
That's what we did.
We matted and framed us two in Abe's lap, and Luna rising, and gave it to Mom and Dad. Dad Harrumpft (old SAC Air For Force Veteran). It's still one of Mom's favorite gifts.
She always secretly loved the mischief that John and I got up to, but had to pretend because of Dad.
She turned 80 last week, and we had a big party for her. Had some of our friends in too. They all loved those pics, and the story.
It's been very hard to even find mention of this show. Thank you for posting such a beautiful recording.
Subject: Very Emotional Show
This recording is ok, with lots of crowd as noted but for those that were there wanting to relive for a moment its worth it.
Highlight was very emotional end to bass/drums with Wasserman doing a poignant and heartbreaking Amazing Grace. Crowd goes totally silent when first notes begin, then as it builds crowds begin to call out Jerry's name/"We miss you Jerry"
Not too many dry eyes in the house at that point.
